While the UN devotes its human rights operations to the demonization of the democratic state of Israel above all others and condemns the United States more often than the vast majority of non-democracies around the world, the voices of real victims around the world must be heard.

Vail Ja'abari, 36, from Hebron attempted Monday to stab an IDF soldier at the entrance to the Geva Haavot neighborhood in Kiryat Arba.

The terrorist was shot dead by IDF soldiers standing at the Geva Haavot checkpoint.

At about 6 pm Ja'abari approached a group of soldiers that was standing at the entrance to the neighborhood located between Kiryat Arba and Hebron and attempted to stab one of the soldiers.

An initial investigation indicates that the terrorist charged at the soldiers standing at the Geva Haavot checkpoint with a knife.

The soldiers responded with gunfire at the terrorist. None of the Israeli soldiers were hurt.

This attempted terror attack follows another violent incident executed Sunday by a Palestinian who was arrested near Tekoa in the West Bank after he had attempted to attack a resident of the settlement with a miniature metal model of a bike.

No injuries were reported.

According to eyewitnesses, the attacker, who had been throwing rocks at moving vehicles just moments before, charged at his intended victim while screaming Allahu Akbar.

IDF combat soldiers arrested the Palestinian suspect while other soldiers scoured the area in pursuit of other potential suspects.

The motivation for the attempted attack was being examined by security forces, but initial conclusions pointed to an attempted terror attack.

According to an initial investigation, the Palestinian had been throwing rocks at passing vehicle before fleeing to Tekoa in the Gush Etzion region. He was taken in for questioning after his arrest.
